Some classics will never leave us. Here’s a classic you want to have in your closet. The Halter dress! The Halter dress is flattering on all body types because of its slim fit from the bust right before the fabric hits the waist: then from right above the waist to the hem is a relaxed flare. Here are reasons why
I’ve messages floating around of business owners who are thinking twice about offering their product or service and completely shutting down everything. There’s this idea floating that business owners should not offer their product or service right now because: People are struggling, No one cares about buying a product or service,People have their minds on other things! Also, business owners are questioning
I have put together a list of drinks that can easily be mixed up at home. I purposely chose these menus because the same ingredients can be used in all the drinks. You’ll see the drinks have names. But since you are the bartender, you can call them whatever you like. (Side note: The next time you are out at
“What?”, you ask?! Drinking while you organize your clothes!When was the last time you reorganized your closet? When was the last time you said, “I don’t have anything to wear” or “I have way too much brown (or any color) in my closet.” When was the last time you held up a garment and said, “I don’t even know the last time
Let’s talk about Money. Money is neither good nor bad, it doesn’t have a personality. It’s currency: a system of exchange. That’s it. You may be saying, “Tamu, we know that already.” If we know that, why is it hard for us to admit we want more of it? Money is the root of all evil! More Money, more problems!
If you don’t remember anything else about today, remember these two words: Stripes. Patterns. Stripes don’t have to be tricky. We can make them fun. So, what do you wear with stripes? Think animal print and floral. Yes! I promise it works. Side note: Let animal print, in any dress, skirt, shirt, coat, shoe, scarf, be your all-season staple because
IfOnly-ish. What is that? It’s a language. Never heard of it? Yes, you have. It sounds like this: If-only I had more time, If-only I had more money, If-only I lived there, If-only I had not done that, If-only I said that, If-only I was younger. Sound familiar? My phrases were: “If only I started my business earlier! If only I stuck
Right now pretend you are listening to your favorite song: You know that one song that will make you look like you’re having convulsions if you hear it while you’re driving..yeah..that one! Imagine you are singing so loud you’re damn near yelling. See yourself dancing, at this point, you’ve zoned out. Then suddenly, the song starts to scratch, the versus
And Round 3 goes like this. The idea of needing a life coach becomes a crutch. We tell ourselves, “If I could just get a life coach to tell me what to do, things will be fine.” Translation: “If I could just hear someone tells me it’s okay to pursue my life goals, things will be fine.” Let’s stop looking outside
We start worrying about how we would look to other people if we finally decided to choose the “impractical”. Instead of giving ourselves, our very much GROWN assed-selves, permission to pursue the exciting life we want, we start to look for outside permission. If we’re not careful, this asking for permission bullshit can go on for years. For me, it
When was the last time you heard someone (or yourself) say, “I don’t know what I want to do with my life.” Lies. I think we all know what we want out of life. If we were asked, “What don’t you want in your life?”, right before our hands fell off, we could write on sheets of paper, front and
Being active is good! Being active keeps us alert and engaged. Life, if you have one, is busy anyway. We all have obligations we must tend to. Then something happens. We start to complain about all the things that we must get done. We start to gripe about the places we have to go to. We whine about the “duties”
You know those people that have a hard time saying NO, so they offer a long explanation as to why they aren’t going to do something? Instead of saying NO, they say “Well I have this to do…” or “Well let me think about it because I may have to do…” or “I really want to but…” You’ve heard it before,
Ok. Before you roll your eyes and close your browser, “hear” me out. You’re busy. What’s the point in being busy and working to build your iconic life if you don’t have the energy to enjoy the results? I made a promise to myself that exercise will remain a priority: I don’t care what my day looks like! I deserve
So, what are you panicked and worried about? You’ve been here before. You’re no rookie at making tough decisions. You’ve been in a place where you had to plan even though you didn’t know every single step. Your only assurance in the making the decision is that you knew it was the right one for you. You’ve started a business.
Even if you don’t follow what goes on in the world of ballet, you’ve heard of Misty Copeland. I ran across an article in Elle Magazine titled ” Proof That Misty Copeland Is the Most Badass Ballerina.” (The link for the article is at the bottom of this post.) I noticed in the article, there was a copy of one of the
I shared the video below on my YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeHL-HJQt58yRK51uuEYOOg/about), which gives a “Behind-The-Scenes” look into my apparel design studio. I get questions on how I design, where I get inspiration from, and how do I know what to sew. I talk about that some in this brief video. I also like to show what’s happening behind-the-scenes, because as I’m
Life attempts to bring us restrictions in one form or another: from people telling us what we are and are not capable of to where we live or work. So, if those restrictions come from outside forces, why should we add to it by limiting ourselves? We should not change our visions because of what appears to be a limitation.
“Can I get a window seat..Don’t want no body next to me. I just wanna ticket out of town….”Are you singing this Erykah Badu song with me?!(Please don’t tell me if you don’t know who she is. Thanks.)I hope these videos were helpful. I wanted to make multiple short videos instead of one long one.Did that work for you?Here’s a
I kept getting compliments on a dress one day. Because I have a few manners, I would say “Thank you.” But I realized I was saying “Thank you” with a smirk or that non confident head tilt- you know the shy-for-no-reason head tilt that screams “I don’t think I’m worthy to get compliments.” I was also giving the back story,
